The base of the unique handcrafted vessel is birch with a checkerboard inset (maple, walnut, purpleheart) and a Redheart fitted top. This vessel is suitable for small pets (up to ten pounds) or as a token urn.

Unless otherwise noted, all lidded vessels/urns has an oil (either Tung, Linseed, or Walnut), Shellac, and wax finish. This brings out the natural beauty of the wood and provides ease of care.
All dimensions are approximate. Wood swells and contracts throughout the year depending on temperature and humidity. While wood used for screw-on tops is stabilized to minimize seasonal movement, pressure fitted tops can fit tightly or loosely depending on conditions. We recommend gluing the top (with a couple of drops of CA super glue) if you wish to ensure a top fitting cap that will not lift off easily regardless of the time of the year. While we do not recommend using the top as a handle, we realize that admirers often and inadvertently do just that.
Checkerboard Birch Lidded Vessel/ Urn
Hollow forms are both functional and decorative. They are commonly used functionally as urns to hold all or partial amounts of ash remains. We offer hollow forms in a variety of sizes and styles. We can also customize a hollow form/urn for you if requested.
Generally speaking, one pound of body weight will yield slightly less than one cubic inch of ash.

Special Note: Used urns may not be returned under any circumstances. As soon as cremains enter the urn, the urn is considered used.
